India is the second most populous country in the world with over 1.21billion people (estimated for April, 2011), more than sixth of the world’s population. India is projected to be world’s most populous country by 2025, surpassing china, its population exceeding 1.6 billion people by 2050.Comparing with the population there are 2.65 million cars sold in India as of march 2011. According to the society of Indian automotive manufacturer, annual car sales are projected to increase up to 5 million vehicles by 2015 and more than a 9 million by 2020.By 2050,the country is expected to top of the world in car volumes with approximately 611 million vehicles on the nation’s roads.

India is the second most populous country in the world with over 1.21billion people (estimated for April, 2011), more than sixth of the world’s population. India is projected to be world’s most populous country by 2025, surpassing china, its population exceeding 1.6 billion people by 2050.Comparing with the population there are 2.65 million cars sold in India as of march 2011. According to the society of Indian automotive manufacturer, annual car sales are projected to increase up to 5 million vehicles by 2015 and more than a 9 million by 2020.By 2050,the country is expected to top of the world in car volumes with approximately 611 million vehicles on the nation’s roads.
In today’s world, no one feel comfortable in a vehicle without HVAC system. Therefore, HVAC becomes an integral part of human life. Today’s present HVAC system in car is very efficient and reliable but it has some demerits. They require at least 8 bhp power from engine and consume fuel equivalent of 4 km/lit average. Thermoelectric cooling sourcing the electric power from flexible PV panels pasted on roof of cars can be considered as one of the best solution for fuel saving in cars. The main objective of this project is to design a flexible PV array, intermediate power controller unit and thermoelectric cooling system installed on a conventional blower of car AC. The idea of cooling is based on Peltier effect, as when a dc current flows through TE modules it generates a heat transfer and temperature difference across the ceramic substrates causing one side of the module to be cold and the other side to be hot. The purpose of the project is to make use of the cold side to cool the ambient air to a lower temperature, so that it can be used for reducing the car temperature by at least 7- 8 degrees reducing the load on the main HVAC system of the car. Also when car is parked, the thermoelectric cooler will keep inner car temperature below ambient temperature thereby reducing the initial temperature jerk on car’s HVAC system when it is started.

The development process of the Electric Vehicle (EV) is interesting, as the first documented invention of an EV dates back to 1834. Due to the lack of technology, primarily for electrochemical storage units, the interest in EVs gradually diminished and ceased to receive attention after 1920. In the early 1970s, circumstances changed in favour of the EV concept due to the dramatic increase in petroleum prices concerns about climate changes. Again EV technology sees a renewed interest. The primary design challenges in EVs having multiple Energy storage system lies in managing the net energy expenditure, determining the proportional power split and establishing the methods to determine power split to interface between energy systems
Present researchers are exploring combined usage of multiple-energy storage systems and to obtain high utilization efficiency
Efficiency of electric vehicle energy storage systems is a system-level issue. Every aspect of the system has an impact on the energy efficiency, and the impact of a given subsystem is usually dependent on its interactions with other subsystems.
It is proposed to addresses the power and energy management problem in a systematic and holistic manner by adopting a new perspective approach and a functional implementation framework.
